Thursday, 25 June 2015: Woolworths is set to open the new Brickworks Marketplace in Torrensville bringing some of Australia’s most popular retailers together in one shopping destination.

The new $80 million Woolworths Limited development will officially open on Thursday, 25 June at 8:30am, providing customers with a new Woolworths supermarket, BIG W and Dan Murphy’s stores, as well as more than 40 specialty retailers.

The overall development has created 800 jobs, including 200 during the construction phase and a further 600 ongoing retail jobs.

The new Woolworths supermarket is one of Australia’s most modern, connecting customers directly with fantastic local producers including Barossa Fine Foods, Cibo Cucina, and Emmaline’s Bakery amongst many others. There is also a pizza bar, bakery, seafood counter and cafe.

The new BIG W store has created 130 retail jobs and its latest layout will bring BIG W shoppers a wide variety of products at unbeatable prices. Brickworks Marketplace will also be home to BIG W’s new Party Store.

Also on site at Brickworks Marketplace is Dan Murphy’s, which has served thousands of customers since its official opening in March. More than 4,000 products are available in store, including an impressive selection of Local Hero wines from the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale regions.

The location, formerly home to the J. Hallett & Sons brickworks operation, has been revitalised and Woolworths General Manager (SA/NT Operations), Michelle White, says the development has brought significant investment to the local area since construction began just over a year ago.

“We are delighted the new $80 million Brickworks Marketplace has created hundreds of jobs from the moment construction began and will continue to support an ongoing retail workforce with more than 600 jobs. Local residents will now have easy access to great retailers in a major shopping destination and community space.”

The development’s opening ceremony will begin on Thursday 25 June at 8:20am and customers are welcome to join in all the opening day festivities.
